I’m a WAHM. Work at home mom. I truly love it. But it’s tough some days. Many days. Actually being a mom in general is hard. I’ve been a working mom, a stay at home mom, and a work at home mom. All… hard.
But today in particular I’m having a tough time as a WAHM. My fellow moms… can you feel me?
Guilt: guilt of saying “no I can’t play right now, I need to get this work done.”
Frustration: needing and wanting to grow by business fast and furious but only having an hour of nap time to concentrate on it.
Frazzled: messages dinging at me needing to be answered, kids wanting a snack, baby wanting out of his bouncer, washer buzzing…. aaaahhh!
Joy: I get to spend today with my kids… kissing owies, laughing at the funny things they say, bonding with my baby boy
Sadness: missing the feeling of accomplishment of a full work day filled with productivity and respect and success
Pressure: running a business that your families future dreams are riding on
Peace: getting a moment to just sit on the couch and read with my kiddos and make smiley faces at my baby
Freedom: being able to answer a business text while cooking lunch and running my business in the nooks and crannies of my day
How can a person feel all these emotions all in one day? All in one hour?! Well, a mom can. And I am that mom today. My head and heart can’t squeeze in one more feeling. It just may burst!
So, I’m letting these feelings out on my blog. I hope there are other WAHMS that can relate. It’s hard sometimes. But it is what we chose, and what we love, and what we want. And it’s okay to have days like these. No matter what your job and where you do it at. We are all doing our best to be the best. And we are winning at it.
Cheers to all the hard working mommas and daddies out there making great lives for you and your kids!
